Humans VS chickens

Chickens don't really care about over population or anything like that to that point that now scientists have just made it a fact that there are more chickens then humans and they still live a normal life

More than 50 billion chickens are raised annually as a source of food, barn reared broilers are slaughtered at 5 - 6 weeks of age, free range broilers at around 8 weeks, so counting the ones laying eggs which dont start laying till they are about 26 weeks, there are at least 10 billion of them running about at any one time.

Imagine this: 23-27 million chickens are killed around the world every single day. Consider that 5 drumsticks are equal to 2 and a half chickens, and you start to realize why this is! This is an incredibly high amount of chickens.
